"Porter was the first commercially brewed beer. It was named for the train porters who were its original servers and consumers. Samuel Smith's Old Brewery, Yorkshire's oldest, reintroduced authentic porter to the British beer scene in 1979 after an absence of more than 50 years. Very dark, fairly full in body and packed with flavor. Intense, dry tangy character of roasted barley. Serve with oysters on the half shell, Rockefeller or Cajun style; clams, mussels, crab cocktail, lobster bisque and other shellfish, smoked mackerel pâté, veal with green peppercorns, porterhouse steak and of course chocolate. Traditionally served in a nonik glass or tumbler at 55 °F." —importer
"Appearance: Deep dark ruby brown with a creamy cake-like head that floats on top.

"Smell: Hint of coffee and chocolate.

"Taste: Creamy smooth mouth feel from a medium body with mid to low carbonation. Full rich palate of coffee, carob and a mild acidic twang from the roasted malts. Bit of butterscotch in the middle which lingers into the finish with an underlying fig like fruity flavour.

"Notes: Textured and well structured...a top shelf porter and worth the $$$. A classic porter worldwide, one of best in the Sam Smith brand." —Jason Alström, BeerAdvocate

"Taddy Porter pours a dark brown color with a thick, tan-colored head. Aromas and flavors of toasted nut, bittersweet cocoa, butter crunch and raisin, with accents of soft hops and sweet smoke, add depth to the roasted malt core. The mouthfeel is medium weight, full and satisfying, with good carbonation to liven up the intense, roasted flavors and long finish. A drinkable, well-balanced and flavorful brew." —Lauren Buzzeo, Wine Enthusiast Magazine (94 points)

"Deep mahogany brown color. Chocolate and nut aromas follow through on a supple entry to a dry light-to-medium body with root vegetable and earthy hop notes on the elegant finish. A very nice traditional porter with lots of roasted grain notes." —Beverage Testing Institute (92 points)
